House of the Centenary, was the house of a wealthy resident of Pompeii, preserved by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. The house was discovered in 1879. Built in the mid-2nd century BC, it is among the largest houses in the city. Among the varied paintings preserved in the House are explicit erotic scenes in a room that may have been designed as a private 'sex club'.
